Bigger Thomas, a 20 year-old black man, is uneducated, unsophisticated, and unemployed. When a wealthy family offers him a chauffeur's position, Bigger is torn between gratitude for the job and anger over his subservient status. On his first evening, the family's daughter orders Bigger to spend a drunken night on the town with her and a gentleman friend. By morning the young woman is dead. Native Son is a stark and troubling account of murder, guilt, and racial hatred.

A classic book written in the 1940's but still pertinent to the current times in the U.S.

good recording, well read. Very interesting story of the times and how it related to the black people.

Well worth a read and/or listen to the CD.
